Who We Are
Our Meeting for Worship is a time of quiet that lasts about an hour in which the daily clamor of life is stilled and we can hear God's voice. We believe God is present in every person and that peace is preferable to war. We gather in silent communal worship to wait on the Spirit of God. The Meeting finishes with a shaking of hands, followed by notices covering our varied activities. Children are welcome; there is a separate class for them and there is toddler care during worship.
We have no formal creed, no ritual, dogma nor liturgy. We strive to trust to love, rather than react to fear; we work towards peace because we believe it is the only way; we are led to implement our concerns for the equal rights of all. Many of us have been drawn to this religion, Quakerism, because of its dual commitment to spiritual awareness and social action.
